Anyone had any experience with Zend Core?

Has anyone had any experience with Zend Core 2 or Zend Core for Oracle?

 

The installation seems VERY buggy. Feels more like a Beta really. It asks you if you want to install the bundled Apache, I selected no but it created an Apache dir in the Zend dir as well as an apache startup file in /etc/rd.c

The problem is, it keeps asking to restart Apache after a change is made and it seems to be pointing to another Apache file that I can't locate and so changes made from the UI don't reflect on the system.

 

 

It's insanely frustrating because I can't get it to work properly and the Zend support takes over two days to reply (we've purchased 3 of their other products) and the client is getting frustrated as well, understandably so.

 

 

So, has anyone else had a similar experience? I just want to know if i'm the only one because i feel kinda silly that i can't get it to work :/

The obvious thing to try would be to remove apache (backup httpd.config), let Core install it, and re-add the custom settings from your original httpd.config afterwards.

 

Pretty bad move from Zend though, too send (no pun intended) a buggy installer into the world for a 'premium' product.

I tried it out on Windows when it was in beta. It worked fine for some days, but then the its web interface suddenly broke. The installation failed a couple of times as well. I don't know how it is now in the final version though.

wow really? it just broke without you editing anything? that's not right :/

i even noticed a lot of spelling mistakes in their GUI.

i've considered that but unfortunately it's not an option on our live dedicated server because apache seems to be tied to plesk in a way i don't quite understand just yet. so i'd have to keep apache as is.

 

i did however try letting zend core install its own apache on another machine. i dont remember what exactly hapenned but i dont remember it being successful.

 

in any case, i am provided with the option to use my installed web server or install the bundled server, neither option seems to work :/

thing is, i'm not sure if i've done something wrong. i mean i'm sure there are many people who use it but i haven't seen a case like mine before which is why i made this thread.

 

 

 

 

thanks for the replies so far guys :)

well it looks like Zend Core 2.0 was a buggy release.

 

i contacted their tech support because it kept giving me errors that i know didn't exist on the system because i set it up myself and the tech guy logged in via SSH and after about two days told me that there seems to be a problem with Zend Core 2.0 that other customers had been experiencing as well and that they are releasing Zend Core 2.1 today (apr 22, 2007) so i'll give that a go tomorrow and hope for the best!
